(Newswire.net — February 10, 2018) –At the end of last year, Uma Thurman revealed she also has a Harvey Weinstein story, but she is still too angry to share it with the world.
The actress told The New York Times, she didn’t really want to talk about it, however, she did share unpleasant memories with the newspaper.
“The complicated feeling I have about Harvey is how bad I feel about all the women that were attacked after I was,” she told reporter Maureen Dowd.
After the success of “Pulp Fiction”, the actress worked with Weinstein on other big films like the hugely successful “Kill Bill”. She met with Weinstein alone in numerous occasions when he was complimenting her work as an actress. She once even followed him to the steam room of a Parisian hotel as she was told, but she missed the signs and found herself in her boots and a leather outfit in a sauna with Weinstein in spa robe. When she naively asked about what’s going on, he madly stormed out, the actress told Dowd.
“This is ridiculous, what are you doing?’ And he was getting very flustered and mad and he jumped up and ran out,” she remembers the incident.
An attack, however, came not long after their Paris incident in Weinstein’s suite at the Savoy Hotel in London.
“It was such a bat to the head. He pushed me down. He tried to shove himself on me. He tried to expose himself. He did all kinds of unpleasant things,” the actress said explaining how she tried “wriggling away, like a lizard,” to avoid rape.
Uma Thurman said Weinstein started sending flowers but never apologized. She avoided him as much as she could, but Weinstein was an executive producer of Tarantino’s Kill Bill movie so she had to meet him again. The actress agreed to meet with the producer in the Savoy bar, to talk about the project. Weinstein’s assistant however told her it was a misunderstanding and that the producer is waiting for her in his apartment in the hotel.
The actress did learn her lesson, however, but also had courage to face the predator. She knew what would happen next. The assistant “vanished” leaving her alone with the Hollywood Monster as newspaper later dubbed Weinstein.
Thurman then warned the producer, “If you do what you did to me to other people you will lose your career, your reputation and your family, I promise you.”
Later, the actress said Weinstein threatened to derail her carrier.
